Happy birthday Robin Williams: If only we had a teacher like Mr Keatings in our school. Even though it’s been over 20 years since Dead Poets Society was released, the movie remains Robin Williams’ most memorable performance. The time has come to seize the day. When you heard him crack a joke, you knew you wanted to imitate him in real life. (If you did have some teacher like him, I hope you are still in touch). In our era of distractions, where we are wasting time by scrolling on our phones almost every second of our lives, grasping the meaning of these words right now is more important than ever. He was the teacher we all wanted, but sadly hardly did we have any mentor like Sean Macguire (Good Will Hunting) who could finely bring out the genius in us. It’s a message found in one of his most popular films, Dead Poets Society. He influenced us in various ways. Stars may come and stars may go, but there will never be a second Robin Williams. He plays the role of carefree Mr John Keating, an English teacher in the elite conservative boarding school Welton Academy, deeply in love with the soul of literature. To say that Robin Williams infectiously changed our lives would not be completely incorrect. As an actor his film credits include unique and interesting roles. Robin was a funny man, but not a silly over-the top clown.
